Own Your Stories, hosted by Siona Peterous. Fridays at 11:00am

OwnYourStories is a multimedia series that started in March 2019 with the intent of getting people to expand their social circles and have meaningful conversations with strangers that didn’t shy away from issues regarding current events and people’s personal lives. Eventually, the series expanded into in-person community events that centered people’s experiences in larger conversations regarding politics and culture and developed into a podcast. As OwnYourStories enters a new phase of being featured on WRIR 97.3 the goal is to continue making people question what they know by exploring the intersections politics, policy and culture with a focus on the lived realities of people and their communities.


Siona Peterous is the founder, host and producer of OwnYourStories and Michael Kamel is in charge of creative direction.
